Who Am I?

Written by , Posted in General

Who Am I? is a feature here at VFTB designed to give some of the focus back to those who make the site a success: YOU! We’ll tell you a bit about one of our regular commenters and you guess who it is. We’ll be back later in the day with the answer.

(Would you like to be included? Let me know at lizzie@viewfromthebleachers.com … the more the merrier!)

Who Am I?

  • I was born in NW Indiana, and moved to Laramie, WY when I was 15. I now call the west coast home. I’ve been to Wrigley Field many times but not within the last decade.
  • I’ve been a Cubs fan since about age 8. I’m also a Packers fan. I particularly enjoy sports with the prefix Jello or Mud.
  • I liked Jim Hendry and think it’s too soon to tell about Theo. I’ve been around VFTB for two or three years now, and I jumped in feet first as soon as I decided on a suitable screen name. If my opinion is challenged I typically blow it off.
  • When Norm and Jedi go at it, I can’t keep them straight.
  • When asked if I knew what Gregg means in VFTB-speak I replied “Gregging right I do!”
  • When dining with Seymour I order Subway!
  • I’m married with a grown daughter, I was a Regional Junor Olympic Swim Champion at age 18, and I can honestly claim to have been driven in by a Ron Santo home run.

    Barry Larkin?

    In all seriousness, I’d like to float this invitation to VFTB Nation. I’m in a Diamond Mind Baseball league that may have an opening or two in the next couple weeks. It’s a great game to play (via computer), and it really doesn’t require much of a time commitment. Just the annual draft (which can be done online), then adjusting your lineups and rotations via our league website. We have GM’s (that’s what we call the league members) playing all over the country, so location doesn’t matter. Lots of fun and easy to manage! If interested in learning more, please email me at jbur21@hotmail.com. Thanks!

  • Seymour Butts

    an apparent enigma.

  • Doc Raker

    Seymour Butts is the answer!

    Harold Faltermeyer?

  • Lizzie

    Doc for the win! You’re right, it’s Seymour Butts!!

  • Buddy

    Really? It wasn’t Harold Faltermeyer?

  • Seymour Butts

    Well I thought it was easy.

  • JCstats

    Haha.

    These are fun to read.

    Buddy, normally I’d be interested but I just joined a similar basketball league and that takes up a lot of time.

  • BLPCB

    I never knew you were a swimmer. I was too

  • Doc Raker

    Buddy- thanks for the invite but I don’t keep up with those virtual games very well.

  • chuck

    Buddy: I may be interested. I would need more info to make a commitment.

  • flyslinger2

    A Hoosier. There is still hope for this blog family.

  • Buddy

    Chuck, email me at jbur21@hotmail.com and I can give you more details.

    I forgot to mention that our league is free!
